Ian Poulter believes that he must be patient after ending day two of The Masters nine shots behind Bubba Watson.

Ian Poulter has claimed that patience could be key as he looks to remain in contention at The Masters over the weekend.

A round of 70 on Friday leaves the Englishman two-over-par at Augusta National, and he was eager to talk positively about his form at the halfway stage of the competition.

Poulter told Sky Sports News: "It was probably one of my best rounds at Augusta I think. In terms of ball-striking I hit a lot of great shots stiff today, but I am walking off disappointed.

"I know I am playing well. My scores haven't reflected that in the last couple of months but I have to be patient because the scores are coming and I am playing nicely.

"If I do stay patient I can work my way around this golf course."

Poulter is nine shots behind leader Bubba Watson after two rounds.
